Winter is creeping up on us with tremendous speed and that means dry, chapped and damaged skin is threatening to make an unwelcome appearance! Luckily, L’Occitane is at hand to help with their luscious hand creams, divulgent skincare and even a wonderful collection of L’Occitane perfume for men to banish the winter blues.
Founded by Olivier Baussan in Haute-Provence in 1976, L’Occitane has always had strong ties to the authenticity of the region, and its close relationship with nature making it a truly loved brand for those looking for high quality products to add into their daily routine.
Below are my personal favourites from L’occitane that I’m sure you guys will love too!
With top notes of bergamot and lemon, on first spritz this fragrance is fresh and zesty. The middle notes are nutmeg and guaiac wood, which start to come through after several minutes to soften this tartness. The base notes of vetiver, cedar and leather are what remain present for the rest of the day, which is really what makes this scent so special.
I have tried a variety of Vetiver fragrances available on the market from high street to high end fashion houses and I have to say, this really is one of the best out there and is such a great price too! All of the perfumes for men from L’Occitane are a delight to the senses and I urge you to go and smell them yourself.
Refreshing, masculine and full of character, L’Homme Cologne Cédrat blends citrus notes of cedrat with icy notes of mint and woody spices. This fresh, aquatic accord continues into the heart notes, by giving way to a lingering, masculine scent of violet leaf and lavender. Black pepper, pink peppercorn and ginger give a spicy touch to this accord. Finally, deep, woody notes of cedar, amber and musk soften the strong personality of this fragrance.
Shea butter is jam-packed with Vitamin A, meaning it’s incredibly effective at improving skins conditions, including blemishes, wrinkles, eczema, and dermatitis. Vitamin E is believed to be effective when it comes to anti-aging. So, more than just a hand moisturiser!
